Trista's Spicey Speghetti

So I have been playing with this blog for a year now and didn't really know what I wanted to do with it. So far it's mainly just a journal of sorts and also a place to post my crafts and such that I make. Well I decided I like the blogs with tutorials so I think I might throw in some of those and recipes of some of my favorite things to cook. I thought my Spaghetti would be a good starter. I have always wanted my spaghetti to stand out, I guess maybe because my Dad is known in the family as the goulash master, but I really think it might be because while growing up I had a best friend, Kacie who every time she stayed over she had to have my Moms spaghetti. I wish I knew now what mom was doing to make it so wonderful, but alas I never really asked and now regrettably I can not. But anyways, I loved that Kacie thought my moms spaghetti was so awesome that I guess now that I am older I am secretly hoping that my kiddos will have friends that say the same things to them about something I cook.

This spaghetti is spicey, but not so spicy that kids can't eat it so I hope that you and your family can enjoy it!

Spicey Spaghetti Recipe

( I actually make this a little different each time so there is definitely room for you to be creative with this)Spaghetti Sauce of your choosing ( I used Bertolli with this batch)
1 can of Rotel
1 lb of Lean Hamburger meat or Turkey meat ( usually use Turkey, but my store didn't have it on this trip)
Spaghetti Noodles

Optional ( I use these things when I have them)

Tone's Spicy Spaghetti Seasoning
Sliced Olives
Chopped Onion
Sliced mushrooms
Seasoning Salt
Garlic Salt

Start your water and cook your spaghetti noodles as the package says to. Now while that is cooking throw your Hamburger meat and chopped onion in a skillet to cook. Season now with your Seasoning salt and the Spicy Spaghetti seasoning. Seriously do not worry about if you have the Spicy Spaghetti seasoning I never used this until I made this, this one time. I usually just season the meat with just the Seasoning Salt and Garlic Salt and this is fine with me.

When that is completely cooked through you can throw in the spaghetti sauce, olives, mushrooms, and Rotel. Let that warm up and simmer for a little while on low. By now your noodles should be done. Such a simple and quick meal and by far one of my family favorites with my little family. Also just to make it a little spicier I recommend eating with Pepperoncini's. YUMMY.
